Derek is from Kapuskasing, Ontario, Canada. Derek has ministry experience as a deacon and preacher; he has also lead Bible studies, assisted in planting churches, and has trained as an intern-pastor. One of Derek's goals for ministry is to be a church planter. Derek felt drawn to the CAC because he feels a kinship with our Anabaptist heritage and because he believes the CAC is an authentic church.
Update from Derek: "I still am serving on the worship team at the local congregation I am attending as a guitarist and bass player. I'm also involved with the youth group music team. Recently I made a video presentation for the youth group's halloween service on the subject "The Truth about Halloween". It was geared towards a group of very young teenagers, between the ages of 12-18. So naturally I made the message simple and a little upbeat and silly. Lots of humour in the video to keep the youth's attention. Not my natural style of teaching, but like Paul I had to become all things to all men that I may win some.
Recently I also began my own online ministry called "X-treme GraceLife Ministries" where I have a devotional style blog, a forum for bible study and theological discussion, links to youtube videos of some of my favourite bible teachers, worship music, articles, etc. I just went online with the website tonight, so the ministry is that new. Please post a link to my new ministry under my name on the website, so that other Ministers of the Celtic Anabaptist Communion can join the forum and get involved in some discussions and bible studies. In the near future I plan on opening a ministry account on blogtv.com where I will host live bible studies and discussions.
I also have a new email address, which also happens to be the ministries email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. I'm so excited about being a member of the Celtic Anabaptist Communion, a truly free church which includes people of all kinds oftheological backgrounds.
